Throat Chakra


Communication, Self-expression, Will Power

The Throat Chakra is the chakra of communication, self-expression and judgment. Also known as the Vishuddha, this chakra rules self-expression and speaking one’s truth, the written word, poetry, faith, and will power. On the flip side, the need to criticise, a lack of authority, and indecisiveness reflect an imbalance of the Throat Chakra. Information stored in the Vishuddha includes truth and self-knowledge, your attitudes, and the physical senses of taste, smell and hearing. Throat Chakra imbalance may be experienced as poor self-expression, habitual lying, learning disabilities, doubt, fear, and uncertainty.

The Throat Chakra colour is turquoise or aqua, with the secondary colour as various shades of light blue. The Fifth Chakra is connected to the Fifth layer of the aura, the Etheric Template. This layer of the aura is a “template” for your physical body in the astral plane… such as when a person experiences “astral projection” as if they are walking around in an invisible (to others) form of their physical body.

Chakra crystals such as turquoise, fluorite, blue opal, blue topaz, or blue lace agate aid in Throat Chakra balance. A pretty turquoise necklace might be just the thing to open up your channels of communication!

The essential oils and flower essences used to balance the Throat Chakra are sage, lemongrass, cosmos, larch, blue chamomile, trumpet vine, geranium and hyssop.

Foods to fuel the Vishuddha are liquids; water, fruit juice, and herb teas, plus tart fruit such as lemon, lime, grapefruit, or kiwi, and tree grown fruits such as apples, pears, peaches, apricots, and plums. Simple spices like salt and lemongrass help express the Throat Chakra.

Soft, crystalline sounds have been known to open and cleanse the 5th Chakra.
